You may have noticed that it is no longer summer; it has actually become autumn. You may have missed this because the temperatures are still in the 80s and 90s, but really--it's fall. It happens that I love the fall, maybe because my birthday is the first day of autumn. Really! So today I wanted to show off some great fall-themed fabric I recently got for a special project coming up at the end of October:
Don't those look yummy? Don't know why this looks like night time, because it wasn't, but those fabrics shine anyway. These are from the Into the Woods line from Paint Brush Studios, which is a sponsor of this special project.
The camera doesn't really capture how pretty these fabrics are. The leaf print on top has very rich colors and I wish I had gotten more of it. The others are also really rich and remind me a lot of the colors we'll soon be seeing on the leaves if it ever cools down.
These are great fabrics, but for my project I also added in a few of the Paint Brush solids, just to add a little dash of spice:
This is the print I'm going to use the most of, along with the solids. Two golds and a purple! Purple adds so much to fall prints and quilts, although many lines of fall fabric leave out purple. Most leaves don't turn purple, but check out how the purple mums enhance the yellow and maroon ones:
Okay, the maroon ones aren't quite open yet, but don't the purple, yellow, and green look nice together? These are on my new deck and are making me insanely happy. I have flowers again!
So that's the sneak peek at an upcoming project! Look for the completion of this coming up the week of October 24th. There are some other people involved too, and I've heard a rumor that there *may* be some giveaways. Everybody loves those, right?
Hope you're all getting in some fun stitching and getting to pet some pretty fabric. If we all make things from fall prints, will the weather get the hint?
